I really want to study abroad and Viterbi offers programs in both Dunedin and Auckland in New Zealand which I am definitely considering (here is the overall list of locations). We spent around 10 out of the …

Though I’ve been nearly obsessed with hockey for quite a few years now (Go Kings Go!), I’d never played hockey a day in …
